Yes, I chose fvwm-crystal as the first one to try.  Roberto is right
that it is raise on focus that I was referring to.

I have only experienced gnome, kde and xfce before being enlightened
with fvwm (pun intended).

One of the things about being a noob is that there are so many things to
explore.  How am I supposed to know which WM, Browser, you name it, that
fits me until I try them all?

It was hard enough to decide to choose Debian over the 400 or so other
distributions out there.  Now that I have settled, I have to customize
it to fit me.  At least I can do that and not have to dip into my wallet
and buy third-party programs like I had to do with that other OS.  Now I
can just donate to the projects that I deem worthwhile.
